When I first started this blog, I hadn’t the slightest idea or plan on where to take it.  Do I write about one specific topic and strict myself to writing just about that, or do I write a cluster of different topics which has no link whatsoever to one another?  Honestly, I had no direction in mind at all.  All I knew was that I wanted to write.  I wanted to have a channel where I could go to express my inner thoughts without really having to speak the words out loud.  Sounds like a plan, right?  Yeah, that was what I thought but it proved that it’s not as easy as I thought it would be. 

I struggled for months which led to the anniversary of the birth of my blog, and … nothing.  I struggled to even put a whole sentence together because I was struggling for ideas.  It was very frustrating. 

Tonight, while listening to the sound of the rain I was hit with an idea:  Why not I just log in and start typing whatever that’s playing on my mind and see where that takes me.  Sounds like a plan?  Well, here goes…

I had just finished checking my mail at one of the few profiles that’s accessible to me.  One of my guy friends posted something which I found interesting … about how some folks get carried away with their emotions that they sometimes forget that they are walking in the social network land; a land where people try to live their fantasy, a place where they unleash their alter-ego freely.  Yet, so many have suffered of a broken heart on that land.

Personally, I can’t grasp the idea that two complete strangers who met online either by choice or chance, who probably live miles if not countries away from each other. two people whom have never met face to face, can actually fall truly and madly in love with each other.  I understand about meeting someone who you actually ‘click’ with from the get go but ‘clicking’ and ‘falling in love’ are two very different things altogether.

As a woman, I’m not going to deny the fact that I’m a sucker for romance but no matter how romantic I may be I still wouldn’t be falling for sweet words that I read on my screen.  Talk is cheap if you have nothing to back it up with. 

I have seen my share of drama that’s been going on in that place; from very public romance to a very public break-up, catfights, you name it, I probably would have seen it.   But yet, people still keep going there.  It is after all known as a social network, so most folks go there to do just that … to socialize.  Things can get pretty intense for some who allow themselves to get too caught up with their role-playing of living their fantasy that they forget to breathe.  They get confused between their fantasy and reality.  They can’t tell what is real anymore so they choose to believe the ones that make them feel good about themselves.  Well, that’s my theory anyway. 

As for me, I’m having a blast with the cool friends I’ve made over there and avoiding all the drama.  It’s a nice place to chill with interesting individuals and I would recommend it to anyone who’s interested to check it out.  Only one rule apply … you must never forget to breathe. 😉
